UCLA Students Protest After Partygoers Wear Blackface at ‘Kanye’-Themed Frat Party

“Kanye Western”-themed fraternity party at UCLA is causing an uproar for its racial overtones after some partygoers showed up wearing blackface. Thrown by Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity and Alpha Phi sorority, students who attended the party Tuesday wore baggy clothes, dressed like the Kardashians and some wore blackface, the Daily Bruin reported. After photographs of the party surfaced on social media, students expressed concerns that the organizations’ actions were racist and mocked black culture, reigniting the social media hashtag #BlackBruinsMatter.
